KFAI - Roar of the Underground

So, back when Cave In's Until Your Heart Stops dropped on the hardcore masses several years back, I had the chance of catching the band at Middlesex County Community College. Those who live in or went to shows in Jersey know about this place. Anyway, being the music nerd that I am, I asked Steve Brodsky about Kid Kilowatt (which was just featured in a news byte in Second Nature fanzine mentioning the band changing its name from Ester of Wood Rosin); he said if I mailed him a tape he would send it back to me with their demos on it.

So I did just that and waited a while before it popped in my mailbox. I listened to this tape for years hoping to see a full album from the band (remember, Cave In had not gone all Space Rock or Indie Rock on us all yet so Kid Kilowatt was kind of their softer alter ego except with guys from Piebald and Converge helping out at times). I got teased with a version of the Scope on the first Hydra Head sampler.

Finally several years after the fact...the Hit Single 7" record came out. And I played the hell out of that as well. It had 2 songs not on the demo so it was the closest to new I thought I would ever see from the band. A couple of years following that the LP version of the record came out. I played the hell out of this record until the CD came out. I was psyched about this because it finally had "Tug of War" on it which was one of my favorite songs from the demos.

I still love Kid Kilowatt to this day.

check out their only CD Guitar Method if you ever get the chance...it's good stuff
